A Few More Hints About the New Book…

My new book has been endorsed by James Martin, S.J., author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything and My Life With the Saints. I don’t want to release the entire endorsement, as that would give away too much about the book. But in part, Fr. Martin says,

By turns playful, provocative and profound, McColman asks us to “become like little children” in order to understand some very adult lessons.

If and when we get any more endorsements of the book, I’ll post them here, so stay tuned.

Oh, yes. Here is the ISBN: 978-1-55725-887-8. The book will be a paperback and will sell for $14.99.

I’ve seen the final cover design, and am very happy with it. I don’t want to say too much about it, but I will say that the “eyes” have it. As soon as the publisher gets me a graphic that I can use online, I’ll post it here. So hold tight — all shall be revealed before too much longer.

    I can’t wait to get the book. I am still reading “The Big Book of Christian Mysticism” but I will finish it before the new one comes out. Take Care.
